The United States Air Forces said farewell to a legend today. As Lt Colonel Dick Cole passed away. Colonel Cole was apart of the greatest generation and helped paved the way for the foundation principles of the USAF. He was a Doolittle raider. If you don’t know the story behind Doolittle’s raiders it’s definitely worth the read. It’s sad to say goodbye but as an Airman I will never forget the legacy and sacrifice that these men made.

God speed Airman your mission is completed. To follow up what the article states there is one heck of a party going on as another Doolittle brother is welcomed home with open arms.
